Clean and 'Simply Said'

I was at a craft class the other day and a lady happened to talk about rubber stamps, so of course my ears pricked up. She was talking about buying stamps and then getting them home and not knowing what to do with them other than stamp. I asked her what she did and she just used one ink pad, and more of less made every card the same. It then got me thinking.......I took out one of my favourite sets and thought, ok lets see how many different cards we can make with one set.



Here I have used cardstock: Green Galore/Apricot Appeal/Whisper White. Inks: Green Galore/Yoyo Yellow/Versamark. Extra's: White embossing powder and corner rounder.




On this one I used cardstock: Rose Red/Regal Rose/Whisper white. Inks: Rose Red/Stazon in black. Extra's: chipboard Tag made from a Cuttlebug Die/White taffeta ribbon/corner rounder/ brad and glitter.

On this last one for today I used cardstock: Tempting Turquoise/Apricot Appeal/ Whisper White. Inks: Tempting Turquoise. Extra's: Tempting Turquoise grosgrain ribbon/Glitter/corner rounder and concave punch.
All three cards used the stamp set 'Simply Said' on page 39 of the UK catalogue. Card two also has one of the circle stamps from 'Circle of Friendship' found on page 62. They are all A6 in size, reason, I am filling a tin, so that I always have some spare cards and this size fits nicely.
There is just so much more you can do with one stamp set, but I had to down tools for the day to watch a film with my children. Hopefully I will find some time tomorrow to make some more. ENJOY!
